47188-01 - Vorlesung mit Übungen: Quantum Optics: light-matter interactions 4 KP

Semester Frühjahrsemester 2017
Angebotsmuster unregelmässig
Dozierende Philipp Treutlein (philipp.treutlein@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt Quantum control of matter with light and light with matter is at the heart of many spectacular advances in the field of quantum science and technology. Light-matter interactions play an essential role in a variety of systems such as ultracold atomic gases, trapped ions, NV centers in diamond, semiconductor quantum dots, optomechanical systems and, in the microwave domain, in superconducting devices. Experiments and theory are often closely connected in this field.

This lecture gives an introduction to the physics of light-matter interactions and its applications in quantum technology. Topics to be discussed include: Two-level system interacting with light, Rabi oscillations, Ramsey spectroscopy, optical Bloch equations, mechanical effects of light, laser cooling and trapping, Jaynes-Cummings model, spontaneous emission, cavity quantum electrodynamics, optomechanics, three-level atoms interacting with light: EIT, coherent population trapping, quantum memories for single photons, quantum metrology.
Lernziele The goal is to provide a solid background for research involving light-matter interactions in the fields of quantum optics, atomic physics and condensed-matter physics.
Literatur Will be discussed in the lecture.
Bemerkungen This is the second part of a two-semester course on quantum optics. The first part, offered in fall, focuses on quantum states of light. The second part, offered in spring, focuses on light-matter interactions. The two parts are designed such that they can also be taken independently or in reverse order.
